Tuesday, the day before the 2012 Southeastern Jurisdictional (SEJ) Conference officially begins, the Episcopal Candidates had a full slate. In the early afternoon candidates had the opportunity to introduce themselves to delegates and guests. Candidates, speaking to those gathered in Stuart Auditorium, had 4 minutes to share in whatever manner that they chose. Kentucky Annual Conference candidate, Rev. Debbie Wallace-Padgett, took the opportunity to "share her heart".
Immediately after the introductory session, candidates were whisked away to question-and-answer sessions where they met individually with each SEJ delegation. In each room candidates answered questions for ten minutes before moving on to the next room and the next round of questions.
